Political Hypocrisy on Full Display in Washington DC...

Secure radio political hypocrisy on display in Washington DC live from Washington DC Jay Sekulow phone lines with questions right now called 1-800-684-3110 one 800-6841 10 and now your host secular massive political hypocrisy are displayed. Washington DC reported out yesterday with playing that soundbite from Chuck Schumer when he was on the steps of the US Supreme Court, threatening Brett Cavanaugh, Neil Gore sits saying you won't know that whirlwind is coming, you won't know what hit you, as are lifetime appointments so the not like politicians like they were to run a campaign against you to beat you in the next election cycle. You can interpret that. That way, because that's what it is for a lifetime appointments for judicial nominees. So I mean you won't know what hit you. Sounds violent right, I did anyone think that the Chief Justice I think at the time did think that what Chuck Schumer did was inappropriate and he said that but again that separation of powers and attacking it a separate a coequal branch of government and threatening them with with violent words, fighting words as good as we would call it again was Chuck Schumer's insured in the Senate the nearby call for him to resign. Anybody call for him to start the process in Congress to have him removed. They have their own process to do that.

No and and would've it been appropriate that we played as rhetoric as kind of ridiculous absurd rhetoric, but I think maybe maybe we've gotten so used to being free speech advocates, and now this new world where AOC wants to regulate the news. I would like like Russia, like China were to regulate the news rain in the news is what she said with this is this is dangerous. Folks because if you want it.

If you truly believe in free speech.

That doesn't mean you let anything goes that you know one of its report just said he famously what, what's not allowed under this he said I can't write it down, but it but I can tell you what I see, it was that was that was on pornography not met with him just like that when obscenity is on pornography and I think it was justice Douglas yeah she said I don't know it. I can't write it in a phrase or a test. But you know it when you see it right and that's about it.

When it comes to what it becomes to restrictions on what it when it's no longer speech is protected by the First Amendment and it it it goes to another level. I that's why broadcast stations have different standards and cables to standards and that's why you know HBO can air something different than then what ABC can air and they get in trouble for you what happens at Super Bowl halftime games, things like at halftime shows is is those kind of rules but we're very cautious about that very cautious about that hotter stew about what is clear is so I I think that what we have put together is of course we have Schumer which I would see because for those you on Facebook on YouTube watch a rumble later the day on periscope through twitter, you got to see his his what, but he's also his face and kind of the reaction.

It's not just the words, but also what he's putting out there and the the people surrounding them. Take take take a listener or watch I want to tell Hilgard starts. I want to tell you Cavanaugh, you have released all our land and you will pay the prize you will know I get you if you go forward with these awful decisions.

John Roberts Jeep just days after those payments were given said the following this morning this coming from the Chief Justice of the United States. This morning Sen. Schumer spoke at a rally from the Supreme Court. While the case was being argued inside. Sen. Schumer referred to members of the court by name and said he wanted to tell them the quote you have released the world when and you will pay the price will not know what hit you with you. Go forward with these awful decisions.

Justices know the criticism comes with the territory, but threatening statements of this sort from the highest levels of government are not only inappropriate, they are dangerous. All members of the court will continue to do their job without peer favor from whatever quarter that was Chuck Schumer who is to be presiding over a Senate impeachment trial because of works. Let that sink in permit culture to your phone calls at 100 684 31 two that's what hundred 64 3110. Your questions to on Facebook on YouTube those as well. And also this question again of of and you even each present in this trial go for when he is no longer enough challenges facing Americans or substantial time in our Valley freedom sword constitutional rights are under attack more important than ever to stay with the American Center for Law and Justice for decades now on the frontlines protecting your freedoms defending your rights in court in Congress to get in the public arena and we have an exceptional track record of success. Here's the bottom line we could not do our work without your support, we remain committed to protecting your religious and constitutional freedoms than remains our top priority, especially now during these challenging times. The American Center for Law and Justice is on your side, you're already a member. Thank you. Not well this is the perfect time to stand with us. ACLJ.org where you can learn more about our life changing, member today ACLJ only one.

A society can agree that the most vulnerable invoice is, is there any hope for that culture to survive. And that's exactly what you are saying when you stand with the American Center for Law and Justice, defendant the right to life, we've created a free and powerful publication offering a panoramic view of the ACLJ's battle for the unborn is called mission life will show you how you are personally publication includes a look at all major ACLJ pro-life cases were fighting for the rights of pro-life activist ramifications 40 years later, planned parenthood's role in the what Obama care means to discover the many ways your membership is empowering the right to life question free copy mission life today online/focusing on the political hypocrisy of the politicians in Washington DC those who abuse extreme rhetoric recently have been condemned by the Chief Justice of the US Supreme Court claimant Chuck Schumer who will soon be the majority leader of the U.S. Senate and in charge of quite questionable impeachment trial, reading the news right now. I mean, some are talking about this trial not beginning for months.

I mean, I think that even ups the ante of it being unconstitutional because of that the top timeliness is God and I think that the that the founders did. It was a timeliness thing was that there's an emergency. We need to remove this person and when you go and you say well we don't really whether persons are to God and soldiers do the trial. Three months later to strip them of other rights that are due to them as being present United States. I think that that makes it even more unconstitutional, but we are getting it to that you did that you never, also get to get to present trumpets the order the declassification of everything involving Russia and the FBI that's come later today or Monday. I mean it's it's eight lot of informational BD class or what about all the crisper steel interviews all the dossier info all all the documents that were classified will be declassified, so we're going to learn so much about what Bob Muller's team was looking at and how they put together a report that was unreadable and could come to of course note no issues that they had with the President present was completely exonerated there and so that's coming to talk to Rick Grenell about that in the it later on the broadcast. Let's take a look at. I think the way to start this conversation and not a good and even hairy because I think this is important our office in Washington DC his) is closed all the way through next week because of the horrific acts that took place in our nations capital and that was criminality at a level we haven't seen it was an attack on our very institutions of government that we have never seen at that scale with the rhetoric is very high on both sides, which I think is part of the difficulty or the rhetoric is really loud and we heard that in Chuck Schumer, you heard it in speeches given on January 6 was when I try to draw parallels were just trying to say we, what is the way forward here. The first thing that that is going to spike this if you will. I think this is my concern is what happened just two days ago in the United States house and with that impeachment way it went down the way it was handled with no witnesses.

The note hearing nothing, just impeach now that's I think Sen. Graham commented on that and and other members of Congress who commented on that you you got to give whoever you are targeting new process of law J is going to give the opportunity for the process of regular order to take place and that is not what happened in the House of Representatives with respect to this impeachment article that was the past. You didn't go to the Judiciary Committee.

No one was called as a witness.

It was just a bunch of speeches on both side debate was limited to two hours and would you come out with is an article impeaching the present United States of America on that kind of quote evidence." If that in fact is admissible evidence which I don't think it is we've got to have a process we have to have a process there was no process and new articles that are enacted or that are passed without that kind of due process really undermine the whole idea of the constitutional requirement of due process of law that withers to issues that I think that that are to come up in this debate.

If it goes to the Senate and that's can it be the issue hairy. Whether it's even constitutional to impeach a President after is already out of office and then of course the defense, I would suspect would be free speech, but right now focusing on the free-speech issue and again were not equating anything here and just try to draw parallels were reaped to be careful considered earlier AOC calling for news regulation. Schumer statements from this report that required John Roberts to respond, but January 6 stage speeches that were given. Look at all of those and say mail and by the way, I'm not saying Schumer's is unprotected speech.

I think it's wrong. I think it's insightful okay up into use the word that's being used for this impeachment. They cheapened what it means to be impeached, absolutely. And so one of the key issues I think is to go back to our founding document and to go back to the history of the interpretation. For instance, of the free speech clause, freedom of speech is clearly not without limits. However, it is a core human value enshrined in the First Amendment as recognized by our government and our history, and it operates on the basis of a free exchange of ideas rather than violence or coercion.

So the state may regulate expression for communicative content but government restrict restraint, must meet the strictest scrutiny as in the case of obscenity and so one of the things that we need to keep in mind, here is a balanced analysis and also to keep in mind this particular question with respect to the impeachment did the house of representatives engaged in a balanced, impartial review of the evidence. Did they actually adduce evidence and did they allow the other side to provide another perspective, and I think clearly, if you look at what happened this week with respect to the whole impeachment and sock scenario. We did not have balanced analysis and then you have the additional question of whether or not you can impeach a President after he has left office and so I think at the end of the day.

I think the American people may indeed be somewhat upset with the entire process. Why, because it was not impartial and it was not balanced you. I'm looking to this was Nancy Pelosi back in June about uprisings, uprisings, take a listen I just don't know why there aren't uprisings all of the continuity that will be when people realize uprisings what what is that about uprisings all over the country and I you know endorsing that Canada present Kemal Harris. Let's go to their I say that you know these rights that I can stop when I can and let the right stop. Not until election day. Other than going to election day bite 15. Now there is a movement I'm telling you they're not going to stop and everyone beware not to stop it is going to stop before election day November and then stopped after election day. Gnassingbe everyone should take note of that on both levels that this isn't there an initiator center say everyone beware of these. Those are fighting words. The worst threatening words if you beware of violence. Beware that if were not of a political movement. Okay you beware of something is going to happen to you. That could impact you physically like a whirlwind that you won't know what hit you when you are a lifetime appointed a judge or justice, which means they're not there not be very clear that politics are not talking about running a candidate against you. I can't remove for that. So I beat again and and threatening that if they don't rule a certain way on a certain case that you won't know what hit you, and the only thing way to interpret that is violence is threatening their families is make it dangerous for them to live and we arty know that's a problem for a lot of the more high profile well-known people in Washington DC know if 535 members of Congress. Most people would recognize most of them but the ones that do recognize the ones who speak out either for truth and justice or who speak out with these ridiculous statements both. I think you know what would they do this now you start and you start bring Supreme Court justice into it know everybody does have the security that Nancy Pelosi gets Chuck Schumer gets at war or supreme court justice.

You know when you're just a regular senator walking around Washington DC, you're literally walking around Washington DC you have your staff, but less is a specific threat against you. You have security listen to it. Chris, from CNN.

I like Chris may have been on his programming times were friends, listen to what he said this was in June 2020. Got too many see the protests as the problem know the problem is what forced your fellow citizens to take to the streets persistent and poisonous inequities and injustice in place. Show me where it says the protests are supposed to be polite and peaceful. Dr. Martin Luther King examined what I mean polite and peaceful. They were attacked and they still remain peaceful civil disobedience is always outlined. They don't. There is no like the letters understand line between civil disobedience and attacking police officers or district destroying property and you can say that for the people who who rated the capital who destroyed property loss of life he considered for the people who were destroying Fifth Avenue and I think taking it doing to the capital. If the symbolism is much worse. But when you walking around New York smashing every window you can't that's not that's not just a protest.

It's not peaceful that's that's going to a different level of violence into endorse that or encourage that is the problem and yet were any of these people taken off twitter Reeves MD platform. The decedent lose its rat was seated taken off the air, though today's Martin Luther King should have been Junior's birthday have to be celebrated on Monday, but it's actually today so I thought going to Chris, bite tongue and Dr. King was perfectly appropriate.

I do think what you said right. I think when the next thing I like to we need to get into is there are lines like the Savior that we need to talk about how those like operator why this impeachment is what it up another level CLXIV 30 wanted to talk to us, and there will be right back on secular radio only when a society can agree that the most vulnerable and protect. Is there any hope for that culture to survive. And that's exactly what you are saying when you stand with the American Center for Law and Justice, defendant the right to life.

We've created a free and powerful publication offering a panoramic view of the ACLJ's battle for the unborn is called mission life will show you how you are personally pro-life support and publication includes a look at all major ACLJ pro-life cases were fighting for the rights of pro-life activists. The ramifications of Roe V Wade, 40 years later Planned Parenthood's role in emotion and what Obama care means to the pro-life discover many ways your membership in the ACLJ is empowering the right to life question free copy of mission life today online ACLJ/challenges facing Americans are substantial time and organelle freedom sword constitutional rights are under attack is more important than ever to stay with the American Center for Law and Justice for decades now ACLJ on the frontlines protecting your freedoms defending your rights in court in Congress and in the public arena and we have an exceptional track record of success.

But here's the bottom line we could not do our work without your support, we remain committed to protecting your religious and constitutional freedoms then remains our top priority, especially now during these challenging times. The American Center for Law and Justice is on your side, you're already a member. Thank you, are not well this is the perfect time to stand with us. ACLJ.org where you can learn more about her life changing become a member today ACLJ radius pile is a lot of unrest in the country over the last year over 2020 leading into the election. You had that the protests there were taking to the streets that they would've called the black lives matter protest, but that they kind of got into this own NT 4.0 movement, the far left but we compiled for you both elected officials and and people of the media and in the protesters themselves, none of whom have been condemned. None of the vivendi platform that if you have been arrested or taken off twitter or taken off of Facebook or YouTube and get takeout take a listen and of course if you're watching you can watch all this is all on camera as well. Interesting enough, this also includes, by the way, before Atty. Gen. United States Eric Holder talking about kicking people with their down cake sets kind of rhetoric they're using. Take a listen though the speaker the house said to us just moments ago. Words matter, but apparently those words don't matter when they're uttered by Democrats. I denounce political violence from all ends of the spectrum, but make no mistake, the left in America has incited for more political violence than the right for months or cities burned and they said nothing or their cheerlead for it in a fundraiser for the elevator with either present, Mike pence and Jeff sessions, who would it be one of us have to come out alive. I think you need to go back and punch him in the face since they asked me what I like to debate gentlemen, I said no. I said if we were in high school are taking behind the gym and beat them there still would have to go and put a bullet in dollars. I just don't know why uprisings all of the country. Maybe they will be you bleeding to death at second base because of Bernie Sanders supporter thought he had to kill Republicans that they understand that these deranged people just need to go sign when they go low low to the hilt today. Please, in the face of some congresspeople I wanted tell you. Gord starts I wanted tell you Cavanaugh, you have released a lot of land and you will pay the price needs to be a person with a wish at me destroying other people's property, but these are not reasonable time is for the looters may please show me where it says the protests are supposed to be polite and peaceful means and there was from Eric Holder and it was when they go low we go high, which Pres. Obama uses a is a statement and he said they said they all said hi and he said no when they go low.

We kick them Andy while Eric Holder is a despicable person then was a terrible Atty. Gen. and I don't have any personal respect for him whatsoever for the Atty. Gen. good, but he was Atty. Gen. of the United States and held the highest position in the Justice Department and when he makes the statement when they go low we go high in the crowd says yes and he says no that's not what you do when they go low.

We kick them. Don't tell me that does not incite to and is meant to increase violence is kick J means physical violence.

We kick them out when Biden said I want to beat the H out of them outside the place, or put a drop bullet through Trump said these are incite Mr. violence. There are limits to free speech. We know that we have defendant free speech of the American Center for Law and Justice will rot 45.40 or 40 years since I've known you.

We have done that but we know the limits to which it goes in inciting the physical violence kick them beat the H out of them shoot them are not acceptable forms of Jordan said this is actually right up if you were to start impeachment proceedings if they actually have a hearing in the Senate by think about was the lawyers. I think that the diverse Taipei pipe play that montage but Harry, this is the problem.

Now when you have impeachment pipe speech absolutely. And I also think one of the things to keep in mind here is that we just don't have balanced analysis coming from what might be called charitably.

The lame stream media. So when progressives basically engage in flame throwing out we give them a pass. Why because we have the view in our country, particularly among the media that progressives are attempting to do what to create heaven on earth, but the reality is progressive policies more likely than not are they wind up creating a terrestrial hell on earth, but nonetheless their language is indeed protected by the United States Constitution.

Stacy Abrams had a rally just back in October and Eric Holder, former Atty. Gen. United States was there and listen to what the he said Michelle he says in John 11 says that you know when they go low low we can. That's what this new Democratic Party is about in their impeaching the President for his speech and ignoring their own and their making speech a basis upon which you can impeach a President which they done and make look, there's all kinds will get the sample into the legal issues on the on the hearings, but Jordan, you look at this and they have set up their own standard to not only make the consequence of impeachment lesson significant. I mean, the idea but we only had three impeachments in our history that we had to and we had one of them literally a week before the President was out of office in two hours, literally, that they were the articles of impeachment they came back in the session they they try to bully the vice President using the 25th amendment for the purpose. It's not created for which it's created for.

Like if the Presidents have a surgery so that there's a acting President and vice President that were there done they come at a surgery their anesthesia is not in the air there able to within use their mother mind is clear, that's it for the 20th for the minutes for tougher moving presence forever, and that in fact that that the process makes it so that it's tough for the cabinet to do that because if they try present go back to the Congress but with empty explain everybody think they try to bully me doing that. He said no. So then they just put Ford art. One article impeachment and two hours of debate, there were no hearings.

There were no experts on incitement to violence on speech on freedom of speech on precedents in our in our system even though they don't have to abide by those that usually bring in all their liberal law professor, experts and conservatives Republican get to bring in other experts as well on speech and by the way, you can find a lot of experts on the other side if they were being honest and truthful, who have written extensively try to protect this kind of speech for more extreme speech.

And yet there was none of that and and now it's whatever trial for a former President suffered a private citizen now a private citizen of the United States is going to be tried by the U.S. Senate for it and and either convicted or acquitted to be impeached, but they can't be removed anymore. This is again I think this is that the hypocrisy go to so many levels so many levels and the votes are not there in the longer they wait the less votes there will be even on the Republican side because they're all questioning even that some who would vote to appease the present their question whether or not they it's even constitutional to have the to have the trial in his first place. And that's the truth and whether or not the courts, waiter, not I think this is just this is wrong for our country would have us do we need to play for you to show you that that that the violet inspiring speech presents not use words like that ever ever get those officials to get a complete pass for decades ACLJ has been on the frontline protecting your freedom is defending your rights in court in Congress and in the public arena. The American Center for Law and Justice is on your side. If you're already a member. Thank you.

If you're not well this is the perfect time to stand with us, ACLJ.org, where you can learn more about our life-changing work, member today ACLJ live from Washington DC Jay Sekulow and now Jordan's secular back to second our secular radio. We are take your phone calls 164, 31, two, that's what hundred 683110 talk about the hypocrisy of the left try to impeach this President we play for you extensively. You note numbers of Congress saying if you see the truck cabinet officials getting gas out eating surround the surround you now get in their face or that for Cory Booker give their face pieces ribs Congress go get their face yeah that's good that causes good interactions with we thought. Of course the uprisings the Nancy plus was tieback.

Kemal Harris, joking with Ella degenerates about if you had to build this elevator with Mike Pitts and Donald Trump does. Does anybody have to, they have to come out alive imply that she would kill Kate that that that's that's what you know we that you saw a former Republican. I consulted has gone totally off the deep insight Donald Trump is is a you know Bobby, this ability I said this is where this is where this whole process and I think what's happened here is the process itself has now produced impeachment possible and has not created an environment for more problems in this doesn't calm anything down. This actually exacerbates the situation in my view Andy because what you've done is you've had this snap is that Jonathan present Jonathan Turley called this snap impeachment which was never the intent of the founders of the snap impeachment and now you're supposed move to a snap trial yeah well that doesn't mean due process of law a snap. Impeachment is not this is a cherished right of the House of Representatives that is been sparingly used. If you look at how many times it's been used in the history of this country and it's not intended to be a political weapon is a political process but not a political weapon and that's what happened in the House of Representatives when they passed this article. Impeachment on two hours debate two hours debate not not one witness called, nobody called except a bunch of speech is being made.

Now I want to send it over to the Senate yet which has to try to beginning the day at 1 o'clock the day after it arrives. Whenever that is.

And then we so we can handle that we can handle long been our business during the day at the same time we can talk about covert relief and we can approve the Bidens cabinet officers in a minute. You're talking about impeachment of a presently United States offices are is not even the President anymore. Which raises the question Harry, I mean this whole idea that now the presence gone on Wednesday as President he sees a plumber presents the report to his President, but is not the President which what the clause talks about so that raises that whole issue absolutely so I think if you look at the modalities. If you look at due process. If you look at the Constitution. All of those things have apparently gone out of the window and instead we are focused on inflammatory elements and inflammatory rhetoric driven by one thing that is the Democrats insistent pursuit of on limited power. They believe that they have an advantage politically in pushing this particular agenda and they really don't care what the United States Constitution says they really don't care what the US Senate's Presidents say they are pushing a particular agenda because they believe in the short run, it advances their power agenda. My own view is that this approach will indeed backfire and it should map the question is when does it backfire and what is it mean long-term political and we could talk about that later but that's the question I'm in the presence out of office. If he's not convicted, and I don't see it way he's convicted music run again if he wants.

That's me up them, but there's a whole political movement that that's been created here right and would have missed it. I think that out what what you were going to see is likely the Democrats worst nightmare. If Donald Trump suffuses, which is a reinvigorated Trump support base with more Americans say I'm just sick and tired canceling people. We had German German Chancellor criticizing that the Germany criticizing the canceling out of of the present United States are able to use Twitter to dictate that this is the country we have we have Congresswoman AOC say we terrain in the media. Sounds like now.

Sounds like Connie. This is a good dictator.

This is not the US and so I think they're right on the edge of just creating a whole new from the challenges facing Americans or substantial time in our Valley freedom sword constitutional rights are under attack more important than ever to stay with the American Center for Law and Justice for decades now ACLJ on the frontline protecting your freedoms defending your rights and courts in Congress and in the public arena and we have an exceptional track record of success. But here's the bottom line we could not do our work without your support, we remain committed to protecting your religious and constitutional freedoms then remains our top priority, especially now during these challenging times.

The American Center for Law and Justice is on your side, you're already a member. Thank you for not well this is the perfect time to stand with us. ACLJ.org where you can learn more about our life-changing, member today ACLJ only one. A society can agree that the most vulnerable invoice is, is there any hope for that culture to survive.

And that's exactly what you are saying when you stand with the American Center for Law and Justice, defendant the right to life, we've created a free and powerful publication offering a panoramic view of the ACLJ's battle for the unborn, called mission like it will show you how you are personally support the publication includes a look at all major ACLJ pro-life cases were fighting for the rights of pro-life activists.

The ramifications of Roe V Wade, 40 years later Planned Parenthood's role in the abortion industry and what Obama care means to discover many ways. Your membership is empowering the right to life question free copy of mission life today online ACLJ/Jay Sekulow live or canal or special visor financial security for policies joining us now because I work came out yesterday that should be loosing could be this afternoon no later than Monday that the President has declassified all of the FBI memos on Chris were steel basically everything involving the steel dossier, the Clinton campaign's work with Christopher Steele that led to a molar and that all of this is been declassified to want to bring in Rick I to talk about this and that this is going to be a treasure trove of information because much of this while we were debt defending the President from molar. This was the info they were looking at. You know it's in everything from Rick, one other thing I know you dealt with this is the acting denied one of the things it's already being reported is that baby and this is our friend John Psalm from just the new said that among the bombshell revelations in his mission by Christopher Steele that he violated his confidential human source agreement with the FBI linked information from the dossier to news media is in the final weeks of the election because he wanted to counteract new revelations in the Hillary Clinton email scandal now and I'm not asking this gob smacked him disclose anything you see all the stop and you know what's in here here slightly interesting thing to me are we can finally find out what a hoax. This really was Gagliardi now that mean we we had so much information that has been put forward an effort to be transparent that we realize that from the early days of this Russian collusion investigation that there were a number of warning signs more than one multiple warning signs from career intelligence officials who would say that this is wrong. This is misinformation it's Russian disinformation credible. We should use it. But the problem is that every one of those warnings were pushed aside and classified away. So now were seen as a lot of the warnings that the insiders knew from the beginning, but the public did not know because those who were in charge or getting briefings on the hill only spoonfed certain pieces of information so without getting into details of what's coming. I think that for anyone who really wants to look at what's currently available. There are lots of negative pieces that already weighed in in a direction that that we I should say that we will see in the future. But some of that information is already out look at the footnotes that were declassified, all available on the DNI website you will see that these individuals on were not as adamant that Donald Trump was a Russian asset or if he was dealing with the Russians that warning signs were pushed aside. Unfortunately Rick people are to make a big deal about this on. Honestly, I think that it will show what we know, was happy to present Trump and I guess it becomes to be issued to see that you think the media may distribute will just try to completely ignore the fact that this will prove to be an end in real FBI documentation that the presence campaign was being spied on. There was that it wasn't really a belief that the present was actually some Russian agent that it was.

This was moved by Christopher Steele in the Clinton campaign to just get the attention off of her using her server, then destroying the server with bleach bid and all of that, so they need a new narrative to distract people with but the mainstream media will cover it all. While I certainly hope they will, and they absolutely should we already know that this investigation from the very beginning was something that should have gone forward and the warning signs are all there. I think the organist see now more warning signs people that multiple people on the inside, including the actual authors who cast doubt on what they were saying and I do have to say that this is an important point. This is not just about intelligence officials. This is also about former State Department officials, some who are being talked about coming back into a Biden administration. These are these State Department officials knew the truth they had top-secret security clearances. They knew that the Russian dossier was misinformation. They knew Christopher Steele was peddling a misinformation and that our own intelligence officials felt like it was shoddy. Those warnings were pushed aside and State Department officials continued to push this forward and I think those individuals are gonna have to be asked some very tough questions and their confirmation because they knew the truth and they hit the truth.

Those are just the facts and we're going to see more information that proves that I was also wondering this Rick you we we got this impeachment now behind us in one sense, and impeach the present United States for the speech played these clips and what these other good with the Democrats of been saying and in the Chuck Schumer threats on corsets and Cavanaugh, but I was also thinking about this immediate interest in your experience in Washington and around the globe. Actually, the lack of civil discourse right now is is incredible, and when I read there's a statement that Hillary Clinton made and I thought what I want to play the sound because she she basically says will never absent civil discourse until the Democrats have complete control of all three branches of government. Take a listen to this be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for what you care about is why I believe if we are fortunate enough to win back the house and/or the Senate. That's when civility can start again reported that is it. Civility only if there's one view of thought. Civility meant you could disagree disagree aggressively but still operate within the framework of our Constitution, the government would Hillary Clinton is saying is we will only have stability if we all are thinking the same rate of control of the mechanisms of government.

Thank God she was never President because she publicizes everything every single thing is that she is the perfect queen and her party as a bunch of angels and the other side are out to destroy everything that and there's just no negotiating with her. There's no she's absolutely always going for the most radical political idea and she tries to get mainstream.

I think that we have to reject this type of political analysis and let's also remember that she is trying to make sure that the Democrats get to westernize their power when they control the house. The Senate and in the White House and that's where I have to have a court system J that is re-fair and independent. We can't have politics come into the courts, because that is our only way to challenge the legislature. The legislative and executive branches. When we disagree so the courts are going to become even more important over the next two years, and I hate to say this in and nobody told me to say it but that's why organizations like ACLJ are crucial to support right now because courts for the next two years are going to be the way that we stop some of this bad stuff.

We just got report Eric swallow, Rick is good to be impeachment house manager and I thought that was a signal to try drive away, actually Republican support. They want Republican support. They would go use this against Republican so that the numbers were looking at maybe was up to 25 house Republicans.

It got down to 10 and there getting a lot of criticism. But then there's a new report out just now breaking it that swallow is good to stay on the intelligence committee no review know it, no, no, no special investigation there even though member Kevin McCarthy, Rick and Nancy close were briefed and Nancy Pelosi was silence. After that briefing, she did. She was young, supportive, though I think Kevin McCarthy said was really disturbing what he heard and yet they they are keeping them on the Intel committee so that he will still receive them of the highly classified information and briefings deal select few members of Congress to get that information, but something else happened this week that relates to this that people are not connecting the dots on Barbara boxer, another California Democrat, another Northern California Democrat San Francisco area was just caught representing a Chinese technology firm that is literally denying human rights to the universe. This is an outrage, but it also points to the fact that a problem in California with the Democrats who have become a tool of Beijing. They constantly push the Chinese line that Eric swallow Alex Diane Feinstein, that's Nancy Pelosi, who has celebrated China. This is a real problem and I think that Nancy Pelosi is protecting Eric swallow because it's what China wants Barbara boxer sent word eight registered for days. Rick is nothing really that everything that think you can do that.

The way of countries that are not enemies the United States or have it cost so much trouble over the loan.

Think twice about being a foreign agent as a former US citizen, Rick.

Thank you, are not well this is the perfect time to stand with us ACLJ.org where you can learn more about her life changing become a member today ACLJ Jay Sekulow final segment of this week and what we could spit first President to be impeached twice is literally leaving office.

Tuesday Wednesday Wednesday noon Wednesday at noon to be on his way to a thick Florida and you got a new President being thwarted and yet were still time a potential impeachment trial in the Senate in the Senate's sometime in the next hundred days before the date yeah me that it it looks like it unless they are allowed to split their time which which I'm not sure they will be able to do is volunteering than what is encumbered in its nothing from that yet, so I was asking I was asked care is interesting because any disaster dates yet so they what would we did the impeachment trial when they went into impeachment hearing the Senate when the three of us run for the Senate everything will stop. No other business absolutely just the rules and protocol binds to miss it. Well, can't you basically walk and chew gum and walk at the same time. Can't we do good things and the history. But no, you start the trial at 1 o'clock the day after the documents are delivered well I think this is precisely an illustration of how the Democrats intend to do business going forward.

In other words, the rules, the precedents, perhaps even the Constitution, they are inapplicable to Democrats when and if it constrains their power or their particular agenda and so I think they're quite willing to waive all of these rules when they believe it benefits them and I believe that the American people, particularly those individuals who are actually listening and reading and keeping abreast of what's going on at some point the American people or going to realize that the Democrats are simply proposing to systems of government and to systems of rules, one for Democrats and and one for the rest of us, particularly individuals who live in flyover country. But at the end of the day. The mainstream media will more likely than not endorse the approach taken by the Democrats and will provide cover so that it brings up this question and let's go and take this call from Daniel and New Hampshire's withholding denier glad I article 1, section 2 how sole power of impeachment. But my question is are given, article 3, section 2 began the judicial power shall extend to all cases, there any check and balance available to the impeachment now that can be done for the President to come back and appeal it based on lack of due process so as to be impeachment that took place in the house. He answers no person what's been done is been docketed include it's over other now doing is digging to deliver supposedly the articles of impeachment to the United States Senate. But there is a little get into this more next week. There is a significant we talk about the Jeffrey any jurisdictional issue because in cases you have to have two types of jurisdiction personal jurisdiction jurisdiction over the person and subject matter jurisdiction that I actually this is a controversy I can engage in. I think there's no personal jurisdiction here. No subject matter jurisdiction under the Constitution's framework. On the way they set it up. Yeah I agree I don't think there is subject matter jurisdiction because he's left office. Certainly no personal jurisdiction for the same reason. If I was okay for some to show you don't show up at the left of but however they could force her to give it back benefits who could force him to could actually enforce these rules. I think you know you wait to seal the site where they do and then you you say what you distribute my right to run for office review peacefully after left office of Childs that in court you challenge all of these steps in court. Along the way. Once you know when these this trial is actually going to begin if it is ever going to begin is a question thereto that we can throw out there because hundred days from now. Is this really what the Senate was to be doing is let me tell you how how difficult that is on the sitters is tough enough that you have the that the lawyers the house managers that but they love the house, which is they love the spotlight love to be in the U.S. Senate be on TV but for the Senators to remain silent. They answered the right questions out on a plaque or to a postcard size things they can't really leave really like leaves like go to the restroom or grab water or if they need to do like emergency call there to leave the floor then leave the actually leave, like the cynical back there office to write the code] because they required to be there. Listen to hear everything in the last three weeks and there said all we could do this would quicker. What I mean, not necessarily, maybe a week quicker because you only did one article, but the presence that it's put on a full defense. B wants to write as much and and take up a considerable amount time. I say if he wants to because I wondered wondered do you just say have your proceeding. I'm not commissionable up. That's what I was amazed that showing up anyways like I said, like you said, right but you're by your lawyers attribute it out your say like this is not even legitimate proceeding. This is a kangaroo court would represent them binds White House counsel minutes and you know there is just no asset that is Patsy Pallone's office by way of Verizon when abides in me, that's the thing is like if you because it is not this time it's not the office of the President anymore. This is present yes and so that there's your answer right is that the answer Prof. Hutchinson. Isn't that the answer I think I think that's me right, I think your analysis is precisely spot on the impeachment power only applies at least in my view, to current officeholders and according to Prof. Alan Dershowitz. The Constitution specifically says the President shall be removed from office upon impeachment, noting that it does not say the former President. In addition to what Alan Dershowitz has said Cass son Steen also agrees and so I think at the end of the day. There is no precedent and there is no text with in the Constitution that would support a trial. Yes, the House of Representatives, they clearly had the power to impeach the President. But the question becomes, does the United States Senate have the power to try a private citizen. I think the answer to that question is no finger. I think Harry's right yet. I think that this is a get a piece of that we get into a lot next week as well were doing full analysis of this at the ACLJ so that we can present to you why we believe this is absolutely incorrect and wrong under our Constitution under the laws United States. But let's ousting a final phone call Kathy Ohio online for Kathy. Welcome to Jay Sekulow live, click on that going on in the process. It just goes to click patient and wonderingly when I hear Nancy Pelosi texting all these people inciting violence why the Republican Party why are we not able to bring to trial in the public line if it seem like only one side. There were only in all and yes and we can never get the other side to step up and show all of this hypocrisy and I just don't understand what present status and only can it be now on that we only hear one side is what is displayed, how you hold Congress accountable and how you hold residents accountable. Things like that.

One is there like every two years and now they have majorities house to get an incident that would at the White House so it could be a tough couple of years but I say couple, because you could take back the house and take back the sit in those two years I will be up to conservatives organizing candidates to do that and then I think you know accountability can be help me differently. The party disbanded his chief is the process is a disaster. Will touch on Monday about more about why we believe this is wrong for decades. ACLJ's been on the frontline protecting your freedom is defending your rights in court in Congress and in the public arena.

The American Center for Law and Justice is on your side.
